Spectacular Spring S - Splendid are those images of spring's rebirthing signs. P - Phenomenal when first we see red robins make the scene. E - Eye-catching are the budding limbs, awakened tender vines, C - captivating us with subtle springtime haze of green. T - Thrilling so are vivid tulips, daffodil delights; A - amazing crocus, violets, forsythia galore. C - Classic warming, lengthening of each new day ignites U - unrivaled joy for springtime season long awaited for. L - Luxurious the thrill of hope in every heart and soul, A - astounding us as dormant seeds awake and then implore R - resplendent spring to rise and resurrect from winter's dole. Sandra M. Haight ~3rd Place~ Contest: Spectacular Acrostic Sponsor: John Hamilton Judged: 01/21/2016 The first word of each line is a synonym for 'spectacular' Iambic Heptameter (7 feet per line)
